Abbey House Murder Mystery
Site: Abbey House Museum
This workshop is led by museums staff.
There has been a murder at Abbey House Museum! Mr Sellit, a travelling salesman, has been found dead in our in our Victorian Streets, covered in clues. Can your pupils get to grips with Victorian life and the exciting new developments in Victorian science and policing to help us to solve the clues and crack the case!
This engaging cross curricular workshop encourages pupils to think analytically and build arguments using evidence. Pupils work in small groups to examine physical evidence and then interrogate witness statements in our Victorian Streets to eliminate suspects from their enquiries. They must use the evidence they have gathered to build a case to present to the rest of the class and decide what their next course of action will be.
All of the resources used in this workshop are available free of charge for use in follow up work back in school.
